Swiss Steak is Comfort food at it’s finest! Tender braised beef in a tomato sauce. Serve over mashed potatoes for a dish your family will love.
The best kind of comfort food is the kind that reminds you of your childhood. The food your mother or grandmother use to make. Swiss Steak is that kind of comfort food. For those of us who grew up in the 70’s you will probably agree.
Swiss steak is typically made from a less tender cut of steak such as round steak which is then tenderized and coated in flour and cooked.
How to Make Swiss Steak
My version is not tenderized but instead I brown the meat first and then cook it on low for about an hour which helps to tenderize the meat.
I like to cook it in my nice heavy cast iron pan that has a lid. After browning the meat and onions, I then simmer the mixture in water on the stove top. After about an hour, when your meat is nice and tender, add in diced tomatoes, green pepper and some seasoning then let it simmer about 30 more minutes.
Because it is comfort food we serve it over mashed potatoes! Can it can any more comfortable than that!!? It would also be great over some noodles.
What a better way to warm up the tummies on a cold fall or winter night. A meal just like grandma use to make!
